The Top Breckenridge Events You Must Attend:
In a town that’s dedicated to snow for several months a year, it’s not surprising to say we’ve already had several Breckenridge events pass on the calendar in January! Still, this vibrant mountain destination stays humming all year long. Here’s a highlight list of do-not-miss Breckenridge events…
International Snow Sculpture Competition
Top of the list and one of the earliest events in the year, the International Snow Sculpture Competition is also one of the most popular. No one can resist these amazing and adorable creations that start out as 12-foot block of snow, molded by hand without any power tools by teams from all over the world.
Spring and Summer Beer Festivals
April & July
The Colorado Rockies are full of beer enthusiasts. Naturally, one of the premier Breckenridge events is the annual Breckenridge Spring Break Beer Festival or the Summer Beer Festival. Both have everything you’d expect–delicious, plentiful brews; live music; tasty food; excesses of fun–but with the added benefit of a spectacular location in beautiful Breckenridge, Colorado.
Spring Fever in Breck
Breck Spring Fever is a month-long festival celebrating not just Breckenridge but the people who come to enjoy it each spring! You can expect great bands, exciting competitions, outstanding skiing, and more. The whole town comes alive with Spring Fever!

Fourth of July
Breck’s Independence Day celebration kicks off with a 10K trail run and continues throughout the day with the Firecracker 50 bike race and Fourth of July Parade on historic Main Street, July Arts Festival, live music, kids’ activities, concerts and more. End the night with the National Repertory Orchestra performing a patriotic concert at the Riverwalk Center.
Labor Day Weekend
Labor Day Weekend is just another excuse to have a ton of parties, so it’s filled with excellent Breckenridge events. For example… Sidewalk Sale Days held by local merchants; the Great Divide Art Festival; and The Summit Foundation Great Rubber Duck Races.
23rd Annual Breckenridge Oktoberfest
The Breckenridge Oktoberfest is the largest street party in the Rocky Mountains. This annual September event brings Munich to the mountains, with more than three-dozen genuine German cuisine and brew vendors, Bavarian lederhosen dancing and more. Although the weekend is beer-based, there’s entertainment for everyone, including face-painting stations, a 5k run and a variety of German themed games.
There’s tons of Breckenridge events around the holidays, including Handmade: Holiday Craft Market @ Breckenridge Arts District; the epic Race of the Santas down historic Main Street; the Lighting of Breckenridge; and New Year’s Eve festivities. Check back later in the year for this years event dates.
